Petition to Southfields Triangle Residents' Association
Save Sunny News from being closed
Sunny News is facing closure because new planning laws, designed to regenerate disused business premises, now allow his Landlord to change the use of the building from retail to residential. The legislation was never intended to be used in this way. Last year Wandsworth Council's planning committee unanimously opposed the Landlord's plans, as did 430 local residents. Now the Government's Planning Inspectorate has overturned that decision and granted permission. We are calling on Wandsworth Council to seek a statutory review and challenge this decision as otherwise this vibrant, vital local shop will be forced to close and our community will be changed, for the worse, forever. Please sign this petition and forward it on to your contacts so that we can help Save Sunny News.
Petition to The Planning Inspectorate, Harborough District Council, Houghton on the Hill Parish Council
REFUSE PLANNING PERMISSION FOR HOUSES ON LAND OFF WINCKLEY CLOSE, HOUGHTON-ON-THE-HILL
Since early 2016, William Davis Ltd have made three planning applications to build houses on land off Winckley Close/North Way. Nearly 300 local residents objected to the first two of these applications with not a single comment in support. Our elected councillors on Harborough District Council's Planning Committee refused permission for each of the first two applications. William Davis Ltd appealed unsuccessfully against rejection of the first application, then appealed against the second rejection and have, as of today (24 March 2017), lodged a new third application. Houghton on the Hill’s emerging Neighbourhood Plan is at an advanced stage and states an overwhelming preference for development on the north side of the village where planning permission for 87 new houses has already been granted. The developers are fully aware of this but continue their aggressive drive to develop elsewhere before the Neighbourhood Plan can be enacted. Building on the Winckley Close site is contrary to residents’ stated wishes andthe well-considered objectives of the emerging Neighbourhood Plan. It is also in opposition to the majority decisions taken by our elected Councillors. Interested parties only have until 6 April 2017 to register comments on the second appeal and the new application on the Harborough District Council’s website - both links are below. However you may find this petition to be an easier and quicker way to express local opinion. Please register your opposition to the current William Davis Ltd appeal and the new application by signing this petition. The petition will be delivered to the Planning Inspectorate and Harborough District Council on 6 April 2017 and therefore we request your support by no later than 6 April 2017. The petition will continue to remain open after this date. A written petition is also available in Houghton Post Office. Please make your voice heard.

Petition to Daventry District Council, Newnham Parish Council
SAVE our Village shop-Newnham, Northamptonshire
As a rural village in the heart of Northamptonshire, with a population of 600+ people of mixed ages from the very young to the very old, we rely on the local village shop to offer daily groceries, papers and as safe familiar base for the elderly.The current owner of the shop has applied to change the use of the building to a 4 bedroom house due to their current business model not being as fruitful as they would like. Many of the villagers are in-aware this application has been made and they are all distraught at the thought of losing this important amenity in the heart of the village. We all have the thought that once converted, the property will be sold on, making the only person who will benefit the current businessman and the loss to the village being much harder felt.As a community we would like to give the local council planners a united fight against the proposed application.Please sign this petition as a matter of urgency as Daventry District Council meet to discuss the application on Thursday 18th May at 6.15pm. I would like to present this petition along with local signatures opposing such application.Kind RegardsTom Haynes
Petition to Ribble Valley Borough Council
Save Hammond Ground, Read from housing development
A second Planning Application to build 50 'Units' on Hammond Ground, Whalley Road, Read has been lodged with Ribble Valley Borough Council. Unbelievably this application has been made less than 6 months after a very similar application was unanimously rejected by the Council. If this repeat application succeeds, this special landscape will be destroyed by bulldozers. Far more houses than required by the Council's Planning Core Strategy would be built on this historic piece of land making that Strategy worthless. For more information please go to www.savehammondground.com Please sign this petition to register your support for the numerous objections to this application that have already been lodged with the Council.
